what parents are saying...
AFTER A DECADE WITH BRILA
"I think it’s a very welcoming, accepting environment so my girls have felt very free to be themselves, to express themselves, to ask questions that are outside the normal realm."
"Since arriving in Canada, my sons feel part of something important so they have a responsibility to build toward a more peaceful atmosphere of discussion."
"I’ve spent two-thirds of my life at Brila! Without philosophy, I wouldn’t have learnt there is a whole world to explore: your mind. I love the hands-on creative projects and the perspectives."
"I keep coming back because Brila is something special. It has really changed me—forged and sculpted part of my personality for the better. Transformation is the word to describe it!"
"It's so fun! You get to think about things a lot more deeply than just a surface level and realize that your actions have real impact and realize your reasons for doing things."
what apprentices are saying...
AFTER TRAINING WITH BRILA
"I think everyone should go through this training! I see it as a deepening and a widening of perspectives on philosophical facilitation. Philocreation gives so many tools and aids to make the process both playful and rigorous."
"What keeps me coming back is I feel like my way of thinking is finally challenged and welcomed at the same time, which is truly the best experience possible. Sharing beautiful thinking with other wonderful people!"
